Boho touches and a smattering of sparkle helped Cheryl Broad transform a featureless new-build into a glamorous, characterful home
A bit about me
I’m Cheryl Broad. I live with my partner, Ade, and my 21-yearold daughter, Daisy.
Where I live
My home is a five-bed semi in a village near Lichfield, Staffordshire. It was built in 2006 and we’re the first people to live here.
What I wanted to change
The kitchen felt dark and enclosed and the utility room jutted into the dining area, blocking the view of the garden.
How I made it my own
I changed the layout to make the ground floor brighter and more open. I’ve redecorated with soft pinks and neutrals, and lots of pretty accessories.
My favourite part
The family room – we spend most of our time there because it gets so much natural light and I love being able to look out at my garden too.
